On 7 February 2009, Australia suffered its worst natural disaster in recorded history. One hundred and seventy-three people died when a series of uncontrollable bush fires swept across the state of Victoria. The next day, the headlines pronounced the small rural hamlet of Strathewen, only 40 kilometres from Melbourne, 'The Valley of Death'. Director Celeste Geer interweaves her own family's story with the experiences of five other families and individuals from Strathewen in an intimate exploration of post disaster recovery.
